Members of the Devizes Fairtrade Group were joined by some brownies in a walking entry for the Carnival Procession on Saturday 2nd September. The children's tabards illustrated the range of Fairtrade products available and the giant banana and teacup reminded people of two of the most popular Fairtrade products. In keeping with the Indian theme of the Carnival some ladies in saris carried baskets which instead of containing picked tea had small chocolate bars which the children distributed among the bystanders.

Spring Fair Cancelled - Coffee Morning instead
The Devizes Fairtrade Group regrets to say that the planned Spring Fair on 22 April has had to be cancelled through lack of stallholders.
But keep the date free as St Andrews will be hosting a Fairtrade Coffee Morning on 22 April when there'll be a chance to see the posters produced by the children who attended the workshop with the tea producer, Patrick Kiberia Muthaura, at Trinity School during Fairtrade Fortnight
The Fairtrade Group also plans to be involved with the Devizes Outdoor Celebrity Arts activities - the Street Festival in the summer and the Lantern Parade and market before Christmas. DOCA is aiming to have more Fairtrade, Local and Ethical traders at these events.
